Need ability to view Storyline outside of LMS environment

Good Morning,

While our company does not normally publish any of our training modules outside of our secure network, we have contractors who occasionally work with us on-site, and are therefore required to undergo our training. But because these inviduals are contractors, they do not have access to our internal websites and network drives. They also do not have access to the Storyline tool.

Can you please direct me how we can publish a fully interactive module without posting to an LMS, for viewing by an associate who does not have the Articulate software? Thank you so much!

Hi Chrisanna! Bruce is right

If you don't have access to a web server, here are a few free options to consider:

  • Tempshare: This is a free service provided by Articulate for testing Storyline content. Note: Uploaded files will be deleted after 10 days.
  • Amazon S3: Amazon S3 offers free hosting with generous usage limits. If you go over your limit, you'll be charged a graduated fee.
  • Dropbox: Place your published output in the Public folder in your Dropbox account to share it with others.
  • Google Drive: Change the story.html file to index.html, and set the sharing permissions to PublicHere's how.

Hello, I am an educator looking to supplement my curriculum.  I cannot upload content to our institution's LMS and am glad to hear about the Google Drive option of publishing.  What is the means of receiving student work from the training (quiz results, text entry responses, etc.) if I use google drive?

Hello Karl and welcome to E-Learning Heroes 😊

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you would like to build. If you need to track learners' progress and results, we recommend using your own learning management system (LMS). 

Publishing and Sharing Content

I look forward to seeing what your colleagues share regarding ideas that have worked for them to fill a similar need.
